As you all know, I deal with anxiety, depression, and OCD on a daily basis. Naturally this is going to be quite the roller coaster when I am pregnant, so I decided to find ways to stay positive.
It’s quite easy to list all of the negatives/annoyances of pregnancy. Feeling like a bloated whale, not being able to drink alcohol, swollen ankles, etc…Then there are the obvious joys; feeling the baby kick, seeing them on the ultrasound, hearing the heartbeat and picking out clothes.
I came up with 5 reasons I am looking forward to being pregnant.
- Not worrying about feeling fat, because Hey! I’M PREGNANT. I’ll rock that bikini with my bump, just you watch.
- Pampering myself. Pedicure, manicure, massage–here I come! I never do these things, but if I’m growing a human, I deserve some me time.
- Naps. ‘Nuff said.
- NO MORE PERIODS FOR 9 MONTHS. THANK YOU JESUS.
- Not stressing about getting pregnant!
Take some time and think of your own! ❤
